Ethics can be viewed as a set of morals that assist someone in making decisions in their daily lives. These sets of morals can and will differ between people and cultures. Ethics have been an important part of history and their origination is under much debate. Even though the origin of ethics is unknown, they have played a big role in history by shaping the viewpoints and opinions regarding issues of daily life.
Ethics is a constantly evolving idea as every person’s ideas regarding ethics changes as they grow and experience life. They help a person develop their ideas between right and wrong and their general reactions to things. Each situation calls for a different standard of ethics and different people, different cultures and different places will have different standards. For example, the way we treat animals around the world shows how our standards of ethics differ from country to country. Generally, stray animals are treated better in first-world countries than in third-world countries. In first world countries, there are animal shelters and people dedicated to the betterment of animal lives, while in some third world countries the general feeling towards these animals is that they are unclean. While this example is a generalization, it shows how ethics can differ based on where you are and what your culture is.
There are many reasons why ethics are important to people. Ethics allow us to make decisions by weighing the pros and cons of a certain situation. Without ethics, we would have a difficult time differentiating between what is right and what is wrong. They also allow us to give value to our lives and they give us the ability to set goals. Different people will have different values and set different goals, but they usually will all aim for the betterment of life.
